Broadside was quick to point out that if I did the writing room first and has a place to write, I would maybe get the writing done I've been wanting to focus on all year. Yeah but. He got tired of the yeah buts and walked out of the room, saying something like...you can yeah but all you want. Is that getting where you want to be? When did he a) get so smart and insightful? b) start listening to me when I coach? He asked a good question. Writing room it is!
It was my project of the week. It took me a week to pull this small little space together. And well worth it.
The room has always had good energy. It was once a kitchen, before we moved in to the house 17 years ago. A family of four once live in the upstairs, where Broadside, Gus, MickeyGrrrl and myself sprawl out. (the upstairs isn't that big. I don't know how those folks did it.) This room was a junk room for years. Now that it is re-done...I'm doing a different kind of cooking in it. I'm also now inspired to do the dining room...after some more writing! Sidebar...it is tough to admit it, but Broadside was right. The room makes me happy and I'm writing more and feeling good about it. Again, another simple shift. I love my house. I love my life and the people who are apart of my life. I'm also discovering that taking care of what I love is another source of joy. Whew. I think the re-do of this room was my final exam on that lesson. I'm feeling like I aced it.
Until next week...create to feel great.
